Tools for Your Journey

As the self-kindness portion of The Kindness Challenge has come to an end, I just wanted to share something I think a lot of people need to be reminded of. We’re all on this journey of life with no instructions or manual. We’re all doing the best we can with the tools at our disposal during our journey. It’s easy to look back and see how we could have done things better because we have tools that would have been useful and a different perspective.  Continue reading “Tools for Your Journey”

Self-Compassion Started with Intention

My personal reflection post of week 2 of The Kindness Challenge.

As I focused on this week’s prompt of self-compassion, I realized how the inner voice has changed. I’ve been on an intense journey of self-love over the past four years. Prior to that, the voice in my head was incredibly judgmental, harsh, critical to the point of being merciless. Continue reading “Self-Compassion Started with Intention”
